Thanks to everyone who came out to the Pajama Dash Down Division on February 22, 2014!

Rise and shine and shuffle down to The Salvation Army Kroc Center for a chilly winter challenge. You won't want to snooze through this fun run!

Oh, did we mention there's a new theme for 2014?

It's a PAJAMA DASH!

This third annual 5K run/walk is now the Pajama Dash Down Division, a family-friendly fun run in which you are invited to roll out of bed, don your favorite jammies and enjoy a jaunt through the Alger Heights neighborhood.

And don't worry; we'll have plenty of hot coffee, hot cocoa, hot soup and other snacks inside the Kroc Center to warm and wake you up after the race. 

Plus, kiddos aged 12 & under can compete in the miniDASH kids' fun run, which takes place after the 5K race. Teddy bears welcome (unless they're already in hibernation, of course).
